Some of us are drawn to historic fixers and the process of bringing back decades-old details with time and elbow grease. Some of us aren’t quite as into the elbow grease, even if we do love that historic charm.

A few weeks back, I rounded up some cool historic fixers on the market in Middle Tennessee. But this week, I’m looking at the latter group — those of you who love the aesthetics, if not the quirks, of an older home. Here are six brand new builds from Brentwood to Franklin that give you the details you want without the work you don’t want.

472 High Point Terrace


Classic design touches run throughout — from the curb appeal to the fireplace mantel, transom windows and clean lines in the kitchen — in this Craftsman-style 3-bedroom in Brentwood.

921 Malquin Dr.


Built-ins around the fireplace, prairie windows, Craftsman-style moulding and lots of other details in this new 3-bedroom, 2,200-plus-square-foot home, nestled among Inglewood’s many historic charmers (and the great mature trees that come with living in a historic neighborhood).

917 Riverside Dr.


You have lots of space both inside and out in this brand new East Nashville home, and you also have a ton of those aesthetic touches folks head to East Nashville for: cottage-style appeal from first look, historic-design moldings and doors and clean, classic design throughout.

908B Gale Ln.


A lot of us love historic homes because we love the time-capsule feeling that weathered materials evoke. That sensibility was not forgotten in this 4-bedroom, nearly 3,000-square-foot home in 12 South — you’ll see lots of really cool weathered wood touches, from ceilings to fireplace mantels to the kitchen island.

514 32nd Ave. S.


This one’s for you Tudor lovers: That beautiful brick welcomes you in to lots of other easy-to-love details in the Hillsboro/West End area, including coffered ceilings, wainscoting and eye-grabbing archways.

5007 Captain Freeman Pkwy


Two-level, old South-style covered porches high on your list? This 4-bedroom’s got ‘em, with the beadboard and the cozy hanging lanterns to complete the look.

Any of these have the historic-inspired style you’re looking for? Want some suggestions in a different neighborhood? I’m always here (and glad) to help. Drop me a line.
